Shanghai, China – December 21, 2016 – Mechel PAO (MICEX: MTLR, NYSE: MTL), one
of the leading Russian mining and metals companies, reports signing a memorandum
for supply of the Elga deposit’s coal with China’s Jidong Cement, one of the

According to the memorandum, Mechel will supply its Chinese partners from two to

Mechel’s coal facilities — Elgaugol OOO, Yakutugol Holding Company AO and

2016 and until December 2017. Prices will be adjusted on a monthly basis.
“This is the first long-term agreement for the next year that our company has
signed since coal prices recouped globally. We are particularly pleased that it
involves increase of coal supplies from Elga, a new flagship of Russia’s coal
industry in the Far East. With this contract, Jidong Cement becomes the top
foreign consumer of Elga’s products,” Mechel Mining Management OOO’s Chief
Executive Officer Pavel Shtark noted.
